Potty-mouthed. Wilfully contrary. Ironically self-aware. Genre-hopping. These are all some of the obvious things that come to mind when thinking about Regurgitator. Describing the music, though, is harder.
After more than 20 years, the Brisbane band formed by Quan Yeomans, Ben Ely and Martin Lee defy categorisation more than ever.
The thick layer of irony that surrounds Regurgitator can make them more of a head trip than a band to take to your heart. But that doesn’t mean they’re not serious. In fact, there’s a genuine moral centre to everything they do. They're just more likely to express it with humour, rather than with slogans – and you can almost always dance to it.
It all makes Regurgitator one of the most original and subversive bands Australia has ever produced.
